First Annual State of Nevada Championship Poker Event Set for September

First Annual State of Nevada Championship Poker Event Set for September 0001

Reno, billed as the "Biggest Little City in the World," will be the site of an upcoming big poker event, the First Annual State of Nevada Championship Poker event, scheduled for September 25 – October 5, 2008. Held at the Grand Sierra Resort and Casino, this 11-day poker series includes 32 separate events beginning with the series' Casino Employees' No-Limit Hold'em State Championship and concluding with a lightning-fast turbo hold'em tournament.

In all, 11 separate "State Championship" events are scheduled, one each day, in a variety of different games including limit, H.O.R.S.E., Omaha 8-or-better, stud 8-or-better, pot-limit Omaha, no-limit (also in a shootout format), and six-handed no-limit. There is also a Seniors NLHE championship event for players 50+ and a Ladies tournament sponsored by Ladies International Poker Series Tour (LIPSTour). Capping the event is the 2-day No-Limit Hold'em State Championship on October 4th and 5th. Mega satellites will be held on October 3rd to award seats to the $1,000 buy-in big event.

In addition to the championship events, poker players will have choice of 18 other no-limit hold'em tournaments, held twice daily, with buy-ins ranging from $100 to $340. On October 1st there will be a charity poker event with a $125 buy-in plus rebuys.

With the World Poker Tour having pulled out of Reno, this event will give poker players in northern Nevada a new opportunity to "Take on the State." Thanks to the special rates provided to tournament players, out-of-town guests who want to travel to take part will be treated to the premier dining and entertainment options of the beautiful Grand Sierra Resort and Casino (formerly the Reno Hilton), the largest casino in northern Nevada.
